Upcoming training courses

SPECIAL EVENT 2d European Advanced School for Mouse Phenogenomics
June 12 - 16, 2017
Goersdorf, France

  • Deadline for application : April 28th 2017  !

Would you like to learn how to choose, create and analyse your best mouse model?

Do you have a sufficient background in mouse functional genomics to lead as best your research?

Then, come to the heart of Europe to be involved - together with other students and researchers from all over the world - in opened discussion, in constructive analysis of your own research and in building conceptual scientific advances.This unique international event will provide the attendees with an innovative program focused on the best practices in the use of the mouse model for biomedical and basic research.

You will gain crucial skills required to use as best mutant mice (best experimental design, scientific and ethic consideration for you best experimental design, awareness for improving robustness of your scientific data,..)

24 experts from European landscape will be present to:

  • Exchange and discuss your major on-going works, scientific and methodological issues.
  • Share knowledge and expertise, transfer new concepts and innovative methods

The target audience consists of engineers and/or researchers, clinicians, who directly or indirectly use mouse as animal model for scientific research.

We encourage both industrial and academic researchers, postdocs and PhDs from all Europe to attend this school.

TRAINING COURSE In vivo CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing
November 9 - 10, 2017
Illkirch, France


PHENOMIN's training aims to provide a general framework to get scientists started using CRISPR/Cas9 for in vivo gene editing in rodents.

The main topics are:

  • Learn more about gene editing and how it works
  • Hear about current advances on many technical aspects
  • Optimize the RNA guide design to the genotyping analysis (bioinformatics workshop).
  • Highlight crucial issue in your own scientific project.
